What are they teaching kids these days!
OK, so I am at my desk...
A pupils approaches, year 5...
question "can you print me a net to make a cube?"
answer "no problem, what size do you want?"
I pass him a school ruler marked in centimeters and millimeters.
He thinks for a bit, and then says... "Oh about an inch"
"What's an inch?" I say, "Nobody works in inches these days, and I haven't for all my working life"
"Oh", he says, "I thought it would be easier for you to understand"
"What?" I exclaim, "because I am old!" (I am only 52!)
WTF are they teaching these kids today? Inches! I don't use no steenking inches!
